SEC should not hurriedly complete election process: Congress

Panaji, Mar 5 (UNI) The Congress in Goa on Friday alleged that State Election Commission (SEC) was working on behest of government and said SEC should not hurriedly complete the process of municipality election as Supreme Court is expected to give judgment on Tuesday.
Addressing a press conference in the city, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) spokesperson Amarnath Panjikar said,'' High Court of Bombay at Goa has quashed the Order dated 04/02/2021 issued by the Director of Municipal Administration (DMA) notifying the reservation of the seats and has also by necessary implication struck down the Election Notification issued by the Election Commission. One SLP has been preferred before the Supreme Court that relates to the Sanguem Municipality and in the said SLP No. 3937/2021 the hourable Supreme Court has stayed the operation of the judgment as well as the Election Commission Notification vide its Order dated 04/03/2021.''
According to him, the Supreme Court has only stayed the directives of the High Court and it has not ordered the re-starting of the election process which was stopped on March 1, 2021, which means only the further operation of the High Court Judgment is stayed.
